Time for a freeze on Arctic drilling?

Many lessons have been learnt in the wake of the BP oil catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico, but more must be done to ensure such an event never happens again – including a halt to drilling in remote areas where any disaster response is restricted.

When the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in the early morning hours of April 20, 2010 it spawned one of the worst environmental disasters in US history. BP Plc’s Macondo well blowout lasted 89 days, spewing nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, and taking the lives of 11 men. The catastrophe showed the clear need for a massive, well-coordinated response when disaster strikes.
